The crypto exchange is now providing retail customers and institutional clients with secure, easy, and regulated access to the crypto economy.

Solarisbank KYC

Solarisbank, a fintech and a leading banking-as-a-service platform, offers a KYC solution that is compliant with anti-money laundering laws and customizable as per a customer’s requirements.

Solarisbank’s Bankident solution is available round the clock and fully digital, requires no physical interaction, and is an unlimited scalable identification process that is AML compliant.

“The expertise in the area of compliance and the highly efficient KYC platform convinced us to choose Solarisbank as our partner,” said Sascha Rangoonwala, Coinbase’s Country Manager for Germany. “Through a single API, we were able to integrate different services in a very short time and can now offer a flexible onboarding experience to our customers in Germany.”

“By integrating our fully digital KYC platform, we enable paper-free, fast, and automated onboarding, meeting Coinbase’s high standards for a frictionless customer experience,” said Delia König, Managing Director Identity of Solarisbank.

Coinbase is the first crypto exchange to onboard Solarisbank’s KYC platform.
